   welcome to both of you. i heard this from someone very up flew wednesday with a lot of skin in the game. what do you think about this theory, steve? >> i think the theory is, is there may be something to it. it is pretty clear that barack obama need to repair his relationship with liberals on capitol hill. they're not very excited about potential military action in syria. you know, they're not happy with the, with the sequester spending cuts. and so barack obama is losing a little bit of his left-wing base. now how do you recapture that? one requested, melissa, would be to put someone at the left really likes in the position of federal reserve chairman. and of course that is janet yellen. janet yellen is the first choice of all liberals. melissa: yeah. >> in that case you would see larry summers being the fall guy. melissa: jonathan, what do you think about this? this was all the talk, before we got all wrapped up in the syria thing, this is on the front page
